Welcome!

wordpress2I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at the Pennsylvania State University. I specialize in international relations and comparative politics. My research focuses on the external and domestic influences on autocratic regime survival, military politics, domestic sources of foreign policy, and repression. My advisor is Joseph Wright.

My teaching interests involve international relations and comparative regimes. I taught International Relations Theory at Penn State and look forward to teaching courses on autocratic regimes, foreign policy analysis, and national security in the future.
